    We visited this restaurant looking for the whole peruvian dining experience. When we arrived we ordered Pisco ("typical peruvian drink") but they did not have any because of liquor license restrictions. We then order a specific white wine from their menu, but they did not have that one either. We went ahead and order the ceviche mixto, but it was not flavorful. By this time, we have had enough and left. The place had really nice ambiance and an excellent entertainer playing the guitar. It is a shame that the food and the drinks did not staked up to the ambiance.

    We were spending a weekend in Weston and decided to try this restaurant and it was truly an amazing experience. Food was delicious (the lomo salted was exquisite), the wine was great and service was outstanding. We love this restaurant and we are looking forward to the next opportunity to enjoy it. Jose

    It is a little off the beaten path, but this gem of a restaurant is worth going out of your way for. The food is innovative as much as it is excellent. The atmosphere is vibrant with cheerful conversations and live music. I highly recommend it.

    We went initially to hear Cesar play and have gone to hear him again, and will in the future! Of course now a big part of the attraction for us has become the great food. Their fusion Peruvian food is innovative, fresh and excellent. Worth the drive to be there!

    Mochika is small, tucked away in a strip mall next to a hotel. But the chef turns out some amazing dishes!! My husband had an octopus dish that he has been raving about. I had the filet mignon (they were out of the beef dish that I wanted), and my filet was cooked to perfection. The menu is almost exclusively seafood, and mixes of seafood (very few "one type of seafood only" dishes - tough for those of us with seafood allergies). I think that if you ask, they can probably substitute chicken in some dishes, but that isn't obvious on the menu. The staff is all so friendly, and they really seem to like working there. Good place for couples and families.

    This is our 4th visit to this restaurant and the food continues to get better and better! The ceviche appetizer is spectacular and this time we ordered two soup entrees and they were truly amazing! If you haven't had a chance to go, you are really missing out on excellent food and even better service!!

    We went to try this restaurant and found the food was very good with nice portion sizes. We ordered 4 Pisco Sours and they took a very long time to tell us that they ran out of it and were going to get more from a local store, so we decided to order wine instead, to avoid more time waiting before the food gets to the table. My niece ordered a steak and they did not have it either, so she ordered another dish, but the meat was not cooked as ordered. They need to work on their service, which is one of the main factors in a good restaurant. Ceviche and tiradito were the best. Rice with seafood had a good taste, but we've had better.

    Amazing anniversary dinner tonight. Formerly Lolita's Kitchen in Weston, now Mochika Peru Bistro, under same ownership with the same incredible chef!! If you haven't tried it yet, run--don't walk--to try it!! The food is spectacular, service is wonderful, and the food is sublime!!!!! Consistency is the key to success, and they've got the recipe;) Definitely try the ceviche but so far there are NO misses on their menu. Hector and Fernando are the owner and his brother: friendly and serviceable. They make sure to approach each and every table and make recommendations! We will be back and hope you try it too;)

    I'm 28 years old and this is the worst experience I've ever had at any restaurant. I was there for Vakentines so it was easily the worst Valentines Day dinner I've ever had. So many things went wrong that I can't fit everything in the space provided...I tried. Just don't eat here. Don't tell anyone to eat here.

    The menu on their website was totally different then their actual restaurant menu. Call before you go to check. Service was good. Management needs work.

    Went there without any recommendation or expectations. We had the most amazing dining experience. Not only was the food presented in the most visually appealing way, the food itself was sublime. The complexity of the flavors and the presentation raised the dining experience to the next bar!! We have already recommended to our family and are in the process of telling all of our friends!! Definitely a must try!!

    The traditional Columbian food was very good, service was excellent, but it being a traditional Columbian establishment it was very loud. The other diners were very loud so this is not a low key date night type of place. But if you are looking for high energy and good food, look no further.

    We really enjoyed this restaurant in Weston. Interesting décor with bright green accessories - small but good crowd and upbeat. Great Colombian food with reasonable prices. Ordered the Colombian burger and empanadas which were fantastic!
